Madras War Cemetery - Review

Cemeteries can be a beautiful place to visit and the Madras War Cemetery proves that just right. This is the place where several icons and legends rest in peace. It was created for the purpose of receiving Second World War graves from many civil and cantonment cemeteries across the eastern and southern parts of India where the graves’ permanent maintenance was not possible. This Chennai in attraction is an establishment of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). An oasis of peace and heroism awaits your visit!

Madras War Cemetery, Chennai Reviews

  • It's a piece of land holding history. Well maintained by the staff. You are allowed to click photo only by mobile. Sadly the locals people are making it's a photoshoot location. Please respect those who died for our freedom.

  • Madras Memorial of the First World War, is situated at the rear of the cemetery. The memorial is styled on the lines of a "Lawn Cemetery". The memorial does not contain any buried dead-bodies, but has plaques with the names of many British soldiers who died in both the World Wars, with the inscription "Their name liveth for evermore". It bears the names of more than 1,039 servicemen who died during the First World War and lie in many civil and cantonment cemeteries in various parts of India where it is not possible to maintain their graves in perpetuity.

  • Madras war cemetry Very superb place to visit . But here photoshoot has been prohibited now as British government requested . Payage place

  • A historic war memorial but ironic - this place has become a photoshoot location. Extremely well mainted by the staffs, I guess this place is leased out to the British government. Unlike many people believe, this is not a cemetery but a memorial for the World War veterans who died defending Britan and it's allies.

  • So nice, especially greeny, to see it, beautiful, unable to describe in words, soldiers are given a peaceful life after their death atleast 😘👍
